She wore memories in her hair. Flowers he had given her so many days before this one, dried and woven into the carefully placed strands. And as she walked down the aisle on her father’s arm and back up it on her husband’s, those memories walked with her. A reminder of all the love that had gotten them there. And it stayed with her throughout the celebration of all that was to come. . . .

Robert and Jaela are married! They celebrated their best day ever in style, with Jaela looking so stunningly timeless in a fitted gown and Robert sporting a deep navy tux. The two of them shared a super sweet first look (we seriously couldn’t get over how excited they were to see each other) before a ceremony in the open air chapel. We loved so much of this day, from the blush and navy palette to the florals everywhere to the small and meaningful bridal party filled with their siblings. It was a perfect day to celebrate a love story that couldn’t have deserved it more.
Cross Creek and Alta Feura came together to create such a magical reception space fill with a mix of high and low centerpieces and greenery filled chandeliers. And all of the beautiful florals combined with the warm string lights gave the space a cozy yet elegant feeling. The newlyweds had one awesome dance party with their family and friends before cutting into the most stunning cake (with the cutest of cake toppers) then ended the night with an epic sparkler send off.
Jaela and Robert, we are sure you two are having the most amazing New Zealand adventure and hope that you love this peek into your best day ever as much as we love putting it together!
Love + Laughs,
